When you're describing your dog in layman's ferms, you can use whatever terminology makes sense to you, really.

So, for Collies. They come in a smooth coat and a rough coat. Smooth is really the same as short, rough is long (think Lassie).

The terminology depends widely on breed and breed standard. Border Collies also come in smooth and rough coats, but Chihuahuas are either short or long haired.

It can get confusing! Essentially, most people will know what your talking about no matter what. If you want to be more specific concerning a certain breed you'll have to check the standard :)
